About GLF Nairobi 2023: ‘A new Vision for Earth’
The GLF Nairobi 2023 Hybrid Conference, held on October 11 and 12, convened global thought leaders to set the stage for COP28, the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference. This pivotal event mobilised action on critical issues affecting humanity, biodiversity, and our planet.
The conference featured two focused days: Day 1 centered on “Africa’s Sovereign Solutions,” exploring pathways to a sustainable and prosperous future for the continent. Day 2, dedicated to climate, aimed to craft a “Survival Guide for a Planet in Crisis,” paving the way for a fairer world ahead of COP28.
GLF Nairobi brought together a diverse coalition of influential voices, ranging from scientists, activists, and Indigenous leaders to financiers, women, youth, policymakers, and private sector representatives. As a united front, we collectively championed change and passionately advocated for meaningful action in these pivotal times.
About this session
In this insightful session, we explored the alignment of agroecology and ecosystem-based adaptation with three practical projects. The GIZ ProSoil project in Madagascar showcased the impact of agroecological practices on climate adaptation and food security. WWF Kenya highlighted capacity-building for ecosystem-based adaptation, and a GIZ Project spanning Ecuador, Costa Rica, and Guatemala illustrated how ecosystem-based adaptation can be scaled up in Latin America to foster more resilient rural landscapes.
This session aimed to strengthen the connections between these approaches, with a closing statement from Oliver Oliveros from the Agroecology Coalition.
